Zelda’s dilemma

Zelda’s dilemma

Ever since last January when she’d turned two, Zelda had been having an identity crisis.  Although her mother told her  it was typical for teens to live in a constant state of insecurity, she didn’t believe it for a second.  She felt certain that all the other bitches in her pack were confident about who [...]

For D.G., with love

For D.G., with love

When Duncan and Guenever understood that Duncan was going to die very soon, they decided to put together a final, glorious performance.  Duncan and Guenever had lived and worked together for as long as they both could remember.  During the olden days they’d co-habituated  with five difficult goats, two catnip crazed but talented cats, and [...]

A Mysterious Melancholy

A Mysterious Melancholy

Although Quentin usually  loved September and October more than any other time of the year, this particular year he noticed a strange restlessness he’d only experienced before in late February.  Daily, the leaves quickly changed from dark green into the  fire colors he adored, the Ratatouille, and corn, shell bean and local pork sausage stir [...]

An Aversion to Sticks

An Aversion to Sticks

Pogo decided he had wasted way too much time trying to figure out why he wasn’t the least bit interested in sticks.  Recently  a red haired man in an Andy Warhol Marilyn Monroe  T shirt brought an armload of sticks into the dog park, and all the other dogs danced about on their hind legs, [...]

Hurricanes, floods, and general suspension

Hurricanes, floods, and general suspension

First there was Irene.  On August 27/28, 2011 the floodplains of Landgrove defined themselves for the first time in probably over a hundred years.   Damage in this town, as far as we know, was limited to Karl Pfister’s white plastic covered hay bales floating merrily down the stream.  Local river towns, as well as many [...]

The Light in August

The Light in August

Lately, Abbie was having trouble relating to other dogs.  The summer had been socially quite insane with pigeon roasts, late night water keg bashes, and multiple dinner and cocktail (aka butt sniffing) parties.   She’d enjoyed some amazing meals – especially the grilled mackerel with blueberry sauce the gay Doberman had served at his wedding breakfast – and an especially [...]

The Metamorphosis

The Metamorphosis

Lately Kafka realized he should probably feel good about his name.  In the puppy mill his name had been number 543.   For years, he’d  been uncomfortable about the fact that George, the tall man with whom Kafka now happily lived, had named him after a long-dead writer who was famous for writing a story [...]

That second martini

That second martini

Ever since his bone digging championship days in high school,  Morris had considered himself  socially popular.  He’d earned a Masters at Harvard in cat psychology, landed a job in a research lab where he was paid very well to study the tendency of cats to suddenly run away from home.  Morris had always been the [...]

Summer magic

Summer magic

Someone said that youth is wasted on the young, but Patrick knew in his heart it wasn’t wasted on him.    When I am old and gray and full of sleep, nodding by the fire,  he thought, I will remember this summer of my life and how  nothing in the world can be better than [...]

July 24, 2011

The evening after Ralph and Stanley were married – at 3 A.M. in Washington Square Park the morning same sex marriage finally became legal in the state of New York – they had a rather intense argument.   The two had several important things in common:  They were both canines;  since their youth they’d both been trained for Westminster, had [...]
